Do you have a favorite object pertinent to your writing? (Pen, coffee cup, pet, blanket, chair…?
What do you love about your latest book?
My last book, Unchanged, surprised me because it was a little adventurous. It had spontaneous fights, murders and even an explosion! I never saw myself writing anything like that, but I found myself on the edge of my own seat in parts of it and it was tremendous fun!
What’s the biggest challenge you’ve faced in writing?
Is there something funny about you people don’t know?
Anything else you want to share?
If you are a writer or want to be, I say nothing’s stopping you, go for it. There is nothing wrong with pursuing a dream, just don’t expect to get rich or have a movie made. I know that sounds harsh, but I think this is the part that exhausts me most. I write because I love it and sometimes, just sometimes I have something real to say. When you go public about writing every writer in the world comes out and wants you to read and review their material. Which is awesome, but I am not a critic, so the best I can do is offer my opinion and a lot of times it is that none of us should quit our day job anytime soon. Writing is a tuff arena and there are many talented writers out there who will never be read by a publisher. So do it because you LOVE it and because it enhances who you are not because you want to be rich and famous, I think that attitude diminishes what we do. So have fun and forget about grandeur, once you’ve done the work you’ve already achieved the dream, the rest is just icing.
